^Yeah, you and March are certainly in the hunt. And the Dolphins have, dare I say it, some winnable games coming up, which would really hurt Dylan down the stretch. The Patriots would really have to fall flat on their face for Ian not to take this home.
They should cancel sports, IMO

You’re probably right but also you’re back in the lead

Our Week 15 is done

1 @Gumchum 85.7%
2 @I am nobody 78.6%
3 @smol Kat 71.4%
3 @March 71.4%
5 @steeze 64.3%
6 @Calamity Panfan 53.8%
7 @glux 50%
8 @Marilink 42.9%

Dylan can clinch the win this week if...
Bills beat the Patriots
AND Dolphins beat the Bengals

If only one of those things happen, Week 17 will be the deciding factor--and then Ian and Dylan will go into tiebreakers, which we also won't know until week 17 ends.

Note: Kat and March are still in the competition, but they need to be perfect, the Dolphins have to win out, and the Patriots have to drop a game. And even then, it's tiebreakers--and again, not sure how those will play out.

Two years ago the Bills made the playoffs for the first time in 17 seasons on a miracle play from Andy Dalton. Now they have a playoff spot locked up with two weeks still to go in the season. Do we actually have a good head coach and a good GM? Is this what success is like? I don't know how to feel. Someone tell me how I should feel.

Standings
1 @Gumchum 80%
1 @I am nobody 80%
3 @smol Kat 73.3%
4 @March 66.6%
4 @steeze 66.6%
6 @glux 53.3%
7 @Calamity Panfan 50%
8 @Marilink 46.6%

all right y'all, it's down to Dylan vs. Ian. For real, though, it's Dolphins vs. Patriots.

And Dylan and Ian picked the same result. So the final result is a tie. Competition over this week, right?

WRONG! The tiebreakers still matter and can't be determined until next week! The first tiebreaker is whether or not the season record prediction was correct. Neither of them will get this. However, the second tiebreaker is whether or not the person predicted the Divisional record correctly. Dylan's prediction of 1-5 can come true if the Patriots do, in fact, win next week. If they don't, then the third tiebreaker is in effect: record in the first 8 games. The Patriots went 8-0, and so did Ian. In other words...

DYLAN will win the pick 'em if the Patriots win, thanks to the 2nd tiebreaker.
IAN will win if the Dolphins win, thanks to the 3rd tiebreaker.

so if the Pats win, that means they've won SO HARD that it makes IAN lose the competition.....

This'll just make it even better when they lose on a 100 yard play in the last second again.
